Today's NurseCall systems operate using wireless technologies and offer enhanced functionality, as compared to the simple push-button call systems of the past. Wireless systems provide a high level of patient safety, whilst taking the burden off nursing staff. By reducing risk, staff are freed up to provide the best possible care and support in residential care facilities, nursing homes and specialist dementia care homes.
TASK's wireless NurseCall system is an easy-to-install wireless solution designed for residential care homes and nursing facilities. The NurseCall alerts staff when a trigger activates, showing alarm location and permitting a fast response. This allows staff complete freedom of movement without compromising patient safety when an alarm is generated. Extended coverage can be achieved using repeaters to allow increased coverage.
A reliable and scaleable solution, the NurseCall has many practical features, including base-unit and staff pagers. When assistance is needed, residents can alert staff manually via an emergency call button. This can be on a pendant, wristband, or fixed position wall transmitter in their room. Wireless pull cords and smoke detectors can also be integrated. Automatic inactivity and fall detectors provide an added safeguard for residents.
Safety and security in dementia care facilities
To help people with dementia retain greater freedom, residents can wear a special wristband transmitter. This means they can move about freely while staying safe. If a person with dementia wanders past a defined boundary, a signal will be automatically sent to the duty nurse who can quickly locate them. Rapid and efficient assistance gives residents and their family members a feeling of safety and security. Please contact us today to find out more about TASK's NurseCall system.
